As many of you are aware, I took a year off from active involvement in the Vampire Community to focus on personal and professional development, to curb operating costs, and because I was satisfied that I had accomplished the goals of fostering academic and institutional research coupled with tempered public education about the Vampire Community. In other words, I ‘retired’. This sounded like a perfectly reasonable explanation and one that would not be met with skepticism.
I can say I know the feeling.Taking the first option was exhausting to me.It never works also no matter how hard you are ready armed to answer or deal with deconstructing cynical individuals unless you take that latter option you took to heal alittle and to re-bond with your own self ,in order to come back again.

I guess I can say Welcome back ,if you feel you are back.
